Strong Winds In Gran Canaria But Heavy Rain Unlikely

Strong wind and some rain this week in Gran Canaria Strong wind and some rain this week in Gran Canaria photosgrancanaria.com

A low pressure system just to the east of the Canary Islands will cause strong winds for the next two days but heavy rain is unlikely.

North Gran Canaria will get some showers over the next few days and there may be a shower or two in the south. It is unlikely to snow anywhere in the Canary Islands except right at the top of Teide volcano as the wind is too strong. (gusts up to 90kmph are forecast). 

The Canary Islands are on alert for strong winds today and tomorow so please be careful close to the sea and up in the highlands. This is especially important on Tuesday when the whole island is on yellow alert for rough seas and the highlands on orange alert for strong winds.

That said, this kind of Cold Drop or Cold Snap is unpredictable so we could get a surprise thunderstorm anywhere in Gran Canaria. 

By Wednesday the wind will have faded and south Gran Canaria should be back in its bubble of sunshine.
